Hi guys Im new to Oculus. I notice that some demos work and some just do not (typically I just see the Hazardous safety info in front of me and thats it, the enter a key to proceed does nothing). This is what I am doing: unlike when I play a game , I do not set the rift as my main monitor and i choose the ... directtorift file. Is there a a work around or any other suggestions. I really want to try to Vox machinae.

Thanks

    You may have a corrupt profile. Please delete this file:
    C:\Users\cybereality\AppData\Local\Oculus\ProfileDB.json
    

    And then open the Config Util and create a new profile and do the IPD configuration.

    Any other suggestions. To give an example "I expect you to die" (https://share.oculus.com/app/i-expect-you-to-die) and "Halloween Coaster" (https://share.oculus.com/app/halloween-coaster-2015) work as expected. We launch the app, the headset responds with a blue light and the simulation is displayed in the headset and monitor. But several demos like the TNG Engeering (https://share.oculus.com/app/tng-engineering) and the RiftCoaster (https://share.oculus.com/app/riftcoaster-hd) load on the monitor but do not play in the headset (power light is still amber).

    At first I thought the problem was with pre-0.6.0 SDK builds, but that doesn't seem to be a problem considering the Halloween Coaster is in that category. We tried removing and recreating the profiles but that didn't seem to work.

    Even a quick scene built in UE4 will display on the headset (within the editor and when exported as a standalone executable).

    I'm also a new user, just looking for some guidance.

    Please make sure you are using games that are confirmed to work with 0.7/0.8.

    See the list here: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=25898

    Older games or recent games built with older SDKs with absolutely not work at all.
